Sorry, no. It's an extended warranty that actually covers more (battery for example) than the BMW warranty). It's not an official BMW warranty but I've used it and the process was excellent.

Then it isn't an 'extended' warranty as it works in addition to the new car warranty.


IMO it is pissing away 399... My expenses for new 3 BMWs ihas been zero up to 50k for non- maintenace items.

Wow, I should have never responded after three days of travel and little sleep. My $399 was for the Tire/Wheel package...My extended warranty was from Pentagon Federal Credit Union and it was $1895 and DOES cover batteries. https://www.penfed.org/route-66-extended-warranty/

I would love to see what this covers for $399. How long is the coverage? If BMW is charging upwards of 5K for a 100K/7 year warranty and this company charges $399 but covers "more" than BMW warranty, I am missing something BIG here?

When I was researching extended for my 05 Audi allroad , I did quite a lot of reading on 3rd party's vs OEM. And while there are 3rd party companys that provide good coverage and are on solid financial footing, costs were often right up there with the OEM from Audi. I saved maybe $500 on an extended. I used it for the suspension airbags and a couple minor things which cost about 2K to fix IIRC. The warranty cost me 3K and I sold it with the car and got 1K for it. It had a cashout value at that point of $950, so I came out ahead $50.

Ahh ok, thanks for the clarification. Your post must have come in while I was replying. Either that or lack of coffee made me not see it :)

$1895 seems pretty good. What are the mileage/year terms for the coverage ?

I would still go with BMW extended warranty although it is more expensive than other companies. I think it's worth it paying the extra $. Previously, I had a 2009 X5 35D and when I contacted a local BMW dealer for an extended warranty, this is what they offered me. Their exact emails copied and pasted:

Based on your driving habits , the 84 month/70,000 mile program may make the most sense. It would provide the maximum term. Your vehicle would then be covered until 01/26/2016 or 70,000 miles again whichever comes first and mileage would not be an issue for you. The Powertrain Plus plan for those terms would be $2,800, the Gold plan would be $4,170, and the Platinum plan would be $4,680. Powertrain may be too basic regarding coverage, really meant to protect you from any major expense. The Platinum would be a consideration if you have the navigation system as the radio & CD player rarely have issues but to replace a navigation system, you may be looking in excess of $2,000. Most of our clients opt for the Gold plan and the majority of our service advisors feel that this plan is most likely the best value.
